I thought I should put a couple of butterflys in the cracks underneath the top. This is my first try at this and I am pretty pleased with the way they turned out.

My journey to building interior doors for the house #1: The Beginning

12-03-2016 12:38 AM by RichTaylor | 4 comments »

We moved into a house built in 1994 last November. It’s a great house with some nice remodeling already done, but the doors were hollow core and we wanted to replace them. Our first stop was to some local Tucson window and door companies. Wow, talk about sticker shock! We had nine doors to replace, and good quality ones were upwards of $1K each. We also found the handyman places that had doors that were solid wood for about $400 each. The thing is, it was a veneer over pine lumb...

Homemade Punch Plate for Makita BO4900V 1/2 Sheet Sander

12-02-2016 11:59 PM by RichTaylor | 0 comments »

I’m sold on Makita sanders. I’ve owned Porter Cable sanders going back decades. Is it that mine are old and tired, or is Makita superior? I don’ t know. I do know that these Makitas are real workhorses and the fact that even the fractional sheet models have dust collection makes them perfect for me. I’m really impressed with the dust collection on the Makita RO sander model BO5041. I have a Jet dust collector and a shop vac, but I hate having a hose to deal wit...

Woodshop/Garage MK II #3: Cabinet Surgery and relocation Part II

12-02-2016 09:55 PM by bj383ss | 2 comments »

I finished the cabinets and got them in their new home. Just in time before the rain started pouring. New top and face frame rail on the 2nd base cabinet. Drilling some pocket holes for the rail. Putting the frame together. I really enjoy using pocket screws they are easy to do, fast, and strong. After mounting the face frame back to the cabinet next thing was to cut the doors down. On the tablesaw sled. You can see how my left side of the saw is limited in ...

Lidded Boxes #3: Turning: Tenon and Outside Shaped

12-02-2016 09:39 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Tonight I continued turning the two bowls that I started yesterday. The tasks for today was to insure the tenons were made and would fit snuggly onto the four jaw chuck I own. The tenons diameter would be 2 inches and dovetailed to fit my chuck. I suited up better tonight. I did not protect myself as I should have yesterday. So I spent some time making sure my respirator was clean and fitted with new filters. I cleaned my goggles that I was going to wear over my glasses and under my f...

Shop stuff #66: 2003 MIM Fender Stratocaster

12-02-2016 08:18 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have quite the back log of footage. So I figure I will keep mixing it up and putting out different themed videos instead of concentrating on just the coffee table build (where I am sitting right now writing this). I have done a couple of guitars for this guy, so he must be OK with my work. This 2003 Strat was one he bought on Kijiji and sent it over to me to get it working the way he likes them. A bit of wiring, lots of cleaning, and a bunch of adjustments later and the guitar is just a...

Sandpaper Sheet Cutting Guide

12-02-2016 03:02 PM by RichTaylor | 1 comment »

Back when sandpaper had plain old paper backing, setting up a guide with an edge to tear against was easy. Nowadays, with the advent of film backing and other advanced materials, tearing isn’t easy — or sometimes not possible at all. I wanted to make a guide that would allow me to easily cut standard sizes from a sheet of sandpaper. My first pass at it used brads to register a MDF strip to guide the blade. It worked OK, but the play in the registration of the strip caused some err...

Favorites Listings

12-02-2016 01:43 PM by Edwardnorton | 5 comments »

I have a simple question concerning saving projects to ones favorites. I recently have saved half a dozen projects that people have posted here but when I go to My Favorites Section they are not showing up. I thought that perhaps it may take a short while to show up so I waited a couple days & when I came back they are still not there. Is there a limit on how many times one can save things to their favorites?
